change bill was dead but obama did put it in the state of the union and there's some talk in congress that if you can get a big grand bargain that perhaps there are elements in that that's going to address climate change. but it's hard. nobody wants to put a price on carbon. >> we've got a story out of southern california. teenage girl in southern california survives a scene right out of a horror movie. she's cowering in a closet while three burglars invade her house. 15-year-old doyin oladipupo called 911, ran into her parents' walk-in closet when the alarm system went off and she was home alone. so the emergency operator telling the frightened girl, don't say a word. after she heard the criminal's voices just inches away from doyin as she hid behind the clothes. >> bring the bucket over here. >> okay, don't talk. >> bring it over here. >> i don't know how i did it honestly because when i think about it now, my heart just starts beating. >> police arrived shortly, and after that they arrested three teen suspects in a stolen car in the driveway. the heroic high school student was not
and unique partnership that israel and the united states share. we are friends. we are allies. >> earlier in the day mr. obama had lunch with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and paid tribute to holocaust victims at a memorial in tel aviv. >>> san francisco police are looking for a man who attacked a teen girl and her mother on a bus. it happened last weekend on the 14 mission bus there. police say the man pushed his way through the crowded aisle, when the girl shoved him back and yelled at him, that led to a confrontation in which he punched her and started to strangle her, her mother tried to stop it but was punched before he got off the bus and while this was going on a second man stole the mother's purse. >>> livermore police hope a newly released photo will help them find a man who held up a bank yesterday. police say this man robbed a citibank branch there yesterday at 1:30 p.m. the man indicated he had a gun. he got away with cash. witnesses describe him as a white man between 25 and 30 years old. 5'10" with a heavy build. anyone with information is asked to call police. >
. the country is getting ready for a new election in may. barack obama is going to return to washington later on saturday, ending his middle east trip. on his visit, he promised the u.s. would continue to push for a two-state solution, but let many palestinians disappointed with what they say is a passive political posture on key issues, namely that tracking of his previous demand that israeli settlement building must stop immediately. palestinianthe national initiative says obama abandoning the initiative of settlement building is counterproductive. >> at the time, when the israeli expansion settlement policies are at their peak, and when israel has the most ,xtreme right wing government pointak position at this is not good for the solution he is calling for. it means that a petition of what we had here in the last 20 years, the peace process that as a substitute to peace, a peace process that is a cover to settlement expansion. also, he failed totally in recognizing the system of apartheid and the ground that is killing the possibility of a two-state solution. >> turkey and israel have rest
, loving versus virginia, 1967, the case that said states could no longer ban racial intermarriage, that was a big deal at the time. and there were still 19 states where racial intermarriage was illegal, when barack obama's parents got married in 1960 in hawaii. so the country changed. and that law is not only unconstitutional now, it's unthinkable. and the question is, is same-sex marriage moving in the same direction? at the moment, it does. but it's certainly not there yet. >> jeffrey, i know you don't like to make predictions about these things, but what do you think is going to happen? do you have any idea? >> well, i think the most likely result is that the court will overturn the defense of marriage act, will say that that law is so discriminatory, it's unconstitutional. the proposition 8 case is a much tougher call. there are a lot more moving parts. they could rule just in california, they could rule for the whole country. they could dodge the issue on procedural grounds. so that one, i'm not even going to venture a guess on. >> all right. again, thank you, jeffrey toobin.
't fall under paragraph one. i think it is better for president obama to stare into a camera and say the united states will respond to attacks on south korea with the immediate use of force. we talk like that during the cold war and we kept the peace. we don't talk like that anymore. and because of that, deterence is breaking down in asia. that's why we have had allst proble all of the problems with deter ents. >> they think they can push us out of arab why and the chinese are engaging in provocative tactics. >> so carl leighton, north korea is a country of 1.2 million people, 120,000 special operations forces. we don't know how many nukes and up to 800 medium and short range ballistic missiles. just to give everyone a sense of the military power there, and, of course, over the past six months there are a lot of tests and provications. so is this deal a sign that the united states sees war as serious possibility? >> i think so, erin. i think it's one of those moments where the united states is looking at burden sharing with its allies. so it's -- although it may be legalistic as gord

as well. could this be obama helping to set up secretary of state john kerry for what you talk about is the larger issue of peace negotiations down the line? >> yes, and i believe secretary kerry is very committed to a middle east peace process. i think it's long overdue. and i think the president's got to give him the political cover that secretary kerry would need. and key is going to be the israeli public. and the relationship with president netanyahu. you know you what say candid or business-like in diplomacy, it means that it's not a perfect relationship. but, you know, a lot of leaders, they develop this relationship. a better relationship, over time, and i think that's what the president is doing. >> so as long as the business relationship can produce positive business results it's a good thing. let's talk about iran. the nuclear issue that's a top issue for president obama's agenda. on friday, defense secretary chuck hagel said there are these plans to beef up missiles after north korea said it was going to be trying to have its preemptive nuclear strike against the u.s. or l
this is a potential debacle not just for israel or the united states, but they've made four more years under the obama presidency. >> megyn: what do you think the president hopes to accomplish while he's over there and what will his message to us be upon his return? >> i think he's going to twist netanyahu's arm behind his back and with great fever say, i stand with israel and hope that the american people will believe what he says and not what he's doing. >> megyn: ambassador john bolton, thank you for your perspective. >> thank you. >> megyn: we've heard powerful statements from all sides yesterday as the judge delivered a guilty verdict against two high school football players accused of raping a young woman. kelly's court today on whether the punishment fits the crime. we'll tell you what happens. and dr. ben carson took the national stage this weekend and suggested, remember this fw guy? he made a big storm when he talked about the president's policies a couple feet away. he spoke again at cpac and suggested some changes underway in the country right now are threatening to destroy our country. he
anger at the united states. >> the americans did not do anything when they came to iraq. they granted freedom to iraq? what freedom are they talking about? >> warner: in washington, president obama issued a statement marking the anniversary saying he joined in paying tribute to all who served and sacrificed in one of our tion's longest wars. earlier i spoke to jane arraf a reporter earlier, i spoke to jane arraf, a reporter for al-jazeera english and the christian science monitor, about today's violence in baghdad and life in post-war iraq. welcome jane. what is known about who or what's behind today's car bombings and suicide attacks? >> well, the finger, judy, is always pointed at al qaeda and al qaeda-linked groups. because they view the attacks to have the fingerprints of that organization. it was extremely coordinated attack as you saw, more than 20 bombs, many car bombs and then for good measure they threw in some suicide bombers as well as sticky bombs on the bottoms of buses. most shi'a target and security targets. that sits in to what al qaeda is doing, try to destabilize the
talks with israel. expectations are still low for any type of breakthrough. president obama wants to hear from both sides and met yesterday with israel's president and prime minister. president obama says there needs to be compromise and a two- state solution >> i continue to believe that it is our best and indeed some only chance to achieve the kinds of peaceful resolution of old conflicts but the opening up of new opportunities for peoples on both sides. >>> earlier today, israeli police say that militants fired rockets at southern israel. hundreds of palestinians protested against american policies they burned flags from each country and a picture of president obama. we'll hear more from president obama, it wrapped up moments ago. live in washington, ktvu. >>> the woman accused of kicking a small child in the golden gate park is due back in court. it comes after last week's arraignment was delayed because she started screaming and disrupted the court proceedings. >>> she's facing five charges that include felony assault and child endangerment. police say she kicked that small c

president obama. >> and he is also accompanied by his secretary of state john kerry, as well. we would like to bring in sara sidner, live in jerusalem right now. can you talk a little bit more about the president's mission? >> we should mention that once he gets off the plane one of the first things he's going to see is the iron dome missile defense system, something that the united states helped fund, the united states giving israel somewhere around $3 billion per year for its security. they are actually bringing one of the iron dome batteries to the airport so that he can see it for time purposes. this is the battery that has -- >> sara i don't know if you can see this -- sara -- if i could interrupt you for a minute we are looking at president obama, as he is coming off air force one there, to meet prime minister benjamin netanyahu. sorry to interrupt you. i don't think you have the pictures. i don't think you're watching them, as well. a big smile, as he is there to greet benjamin netanyahu, or benjamin netanyahu is there to greet president obama. >> how are you? good to see you. >> sar
this perception that president obama has not had israel's interests front and center, and he seemed to succeed at that. in heretz this morning, they wrote, the most powerful man in the world arrived in the most threatened state in the world to promise love. hebrew, noted he spoke how much hebrew he used. and then at the end of his visit, brokered a phone call between prime minister netanyahu and the president of turkey, two countries that have been estranged since a turkish boat on the way to help gaza was attacked by israeli commandos? gwen: so, tom, is this like woody allen says, 90% of life is showing up? just the president showing up was enough to paper over or fix a lot of the problems existing? >> well, he said some really interesting things from the israeli point of view. one of the very interesting things was going to escape a lot of people's attention is he reaffirmed support not just for the state of israel but for the idea of zionism. that was important to the israelis. it seemed to me he nudged a little bit closer to israel's position vis-a-vis iran. but the perception that bothere
and with the supervisors and with the department heads to do what mrs. obama asked us to do. whenever we occupy these public positions throughout the city or throughout the state or throughout the nation, we do the right thing, we keep the doors of opportunity open and enriched for everybody else. and we're already seeing it happen. yesterday i was at the luncheon for the boys and girls club, wonderful, wonderful entity that's reaching out to all of our young high school kids and make sure they're motivated to go to college. you should have heard them talk about their futures. you should also hear them ask for our help, because i know as much as anybody else that our kids will inherit the good things that we do. they will also inherit the things that we fail to do. and i'm about making sure that we fail less in the things that we're obligated to do for our generations. that's why i'm investing in education. personally, and with all of my administration, i personally adopted the 12 middle schools in this city to make sure that the truancy goes down, is not eliminated, that the kids who are in ou

with is barack obama doesn't want to be the first president to let the two-state solution slip away. i'm not sure that the two-state solution makes sense other than in washington policy discussions about the peace process. if you just look at what has been happening in israel, in jerusalem with regard to settlement construction in jerusalem around jerusalem in the west bank the structure of this conflict in which the israelis can't possibly give the palestinians what they require minutenally for peace and vice versa i'm not sure where we see any optimism for coming to an -- >> rose: but people are scared to death of a one-state solution. >> indeed, a lot of people are scared -- >> rose: it's part of the israeli psyche and more. >> it has, indeed. but at the same time the israelis have been prepared to make those moves -- >> rose: the israelis or the prime minist? >> well, i think both. if you look at the way in which israelis have detached themselves from this issue, have abdicated the issue to seters and religiouss meian i can groups in the west bank, i'm not convinced that this is a priority fo
of february. and what happened is obama announced that he is going to israel and the united states--s believes-- made it clear to abu mazen that if reconciliation talks were to continue there would be no funding. >> warner: the u.s., israel and the e.u. consider hamas-- whose charter threatens the obliteration of israel-- to be a terrorist organization. in 2011, then secretary of state hilla clintonas asd if a just-announce pred limb their agreement between hamas and fatah would prompt the u.s. to reconsider aid for the palestinian authority. secretary clinton said "we've made it very clear that we cannot support any government that consists of hamas unless and until hamas adopts principles that have been well known to everyone for a number of years." the principles include recognizing the state of israel. shipley tellhami says the u.s. should be prepared to drop that insistence when it comes to political parties if it hopes to broker a peace deal. >> i think we should insist that any palestinian government-- whether it's hamas or whoever it is-- meet certain conditions including being against

strike. what they were mad about is president obama didn't talk about them in the "state of the union." he didn't say and reiterate he wants to close gitmo so they decided to have a hunger strike. >> bob: are you kidding me? >> dana: i'm serious. >> bob: my wife spent that much money on the house to get ready to sale it. my ex-wife. nice lady. if you try them down there, slow process you told me. if you bring them back here. you have read them miranda rights. >> dana: not going to happen. >> bob: so the host countries won't take them. what do you do? >> dana: president obama promised to close it but then reality hit. and the other reason they need to upgrade it, some of the prisoners now that they have been there ten or 11 years need geriatric care. freddie they need more shuffleboard. >> dana: bingo hall. >> greg: this is the island of lost terrorists. remember island of lost toys? island of lost terrorists. where do you put them. for president obama, gitmo is the employee you can't stand but you can't live without. it's finally come down, rea realizing that maybe i was too hard over
're not going to let the states do them. is it constitutional? now the advocates of prop 8 for example in california, this is the voter initiative passed with 52% of the vote in 2008. the same state that gave barack obama a majority passed this. they say yes it is constitutional. we need to make a distinction between marriage between traditional couples, because those produce children and it's important to make the distinction for that reason only. the opponents of prop 8 who have prevailed in both the lower courts say, allowing same-sex couples to get married doesn't do anything to traditional couples, it doesn't weaken marriage, it doesn't affect their marriage at all. it's more inclusive and there's no good reason not to do it. slightly different arguments on wednesday in the defense of marriage case, the federal law passed 17 years ago that says the federal government won't recognize any same-sex marriages even in the states where it's legal. the federal government says it has to have its own definition of marriage. the opponents say that doesn't make any sense constitutionally, ei
around, don't go anywhere. meantime let's turn to the middle east. president obama is in israel. while reaffirming the united states commitment to the jewish state he is not confirmed reports of a kept call weapons attack in -- chemical weapons attack in syria. one of the reasons we send millions of aid to countries in the region to protect our access to oil. but now domestic production is higher than ever so should our investment in the region be changing? let's talk about that. united nations ambassador and fox news contributor, john bolton. start with israel. the trip there, how significant was that, what do you think the president achieved and what does it mine? >> i think he achieved his main objective and got off the plane and put his arm around bebe netanyahu. he can check the box. he has been to israels president. he got a great photo-op and will get a few more during his trip. this is trip where the symbolism and politics is very different from e private conversations. i think obama bringstwo very tough, unpalatable messages to e israelis. number one, don't even think about us
't continue with the state of perpetual war. host: let's talk about the budget issues. president obama on the hill last democrats g to house from bloomberg's reporting he all of you to agree to entitlement changes to medicare saying it iscurity better to make the changes when office rather n than a republican. what was your reaction? guest: first, no benefit cuts. the bottom line for myself. no cuts in social security, medicare.nd they are benefits that one works for all of their lives or either disabled or can't work for whatever reason. so, we owe this to the american people. when you talk about reform and medicare and medicaid, social medicare for example, we could allow for more for prescription drugs. that would achieve cost savings. achieve many ways to savings without cutting benefits. the formulas that would cut i do not support. host: what about raising 65igibility for medicare from -- guest: no, i do not support that. when you look at many people in sectors and industrial sectors, coal mining for life e, when you look at spans of african-americans and is a shame lor it but
space for peace talks to come into fruition with secretary kerry now at the state department. >> very interesting you bring up secretary kerry. a second ago, jess, we saw president obama greeting secretary of state john kerry on the tarmac there. the secretary of state arrived in the region before the president. he will be in the region again just after the president leaves. the united states appears to be sending the message that the preside president's trip is just part of the overall goal here. >> reporter: right. so, one of the mixed messages we're getting around this trip is the white house has talked down expectations. we should not expect anything to come of this trip. this is largely not just this trip meaning ramallah, the west bank today, but the overall trip to the middle east is really making good to israel and touching base with the palestinians. but despite the low expectation s, there is still a colonel of hope. the focus will be not so much on the palestinian end, but the israeli end, to see what it would take to bring israelis to the table. kerry will come back and ha
in making peace in the region. i have renewed confidence that the united states presented by president obama and mr. john [inaud -- ove -- [indissirnible] i for the u.s. commitments to provide support to the palestine for the d to thank him support that has been provided for the past years, varies forms of support to the palestines and the development projects. mr. president, once again, you are welcome in palestine. thank you. [applause] >> thank you, president abbas for your generous words and welcoming me here. i was here five grires and it is a pleasure to be back. to see the progress that has occurred since my last visit but to see the peace that so many palestinians seek. i return to the west bank because the united states is committed to an independent and sovereign state of palestine. the palestinian people deserve an end to occupation and the daily indignities that come with it. palestinians deserve to move and travel freely and to feel secure in their communities. palestinians deserve a future of home, that their rights will be respected, that tomorrow will be better than today an
both in the united states and israel. the question of how obama felt or feels about israel has been a live political question in both countries, and here to have this kind of engagement with young israeli students is a way of trying to reach out to say, look i'm not an unfriendly president, i really mean when i say -- it's in the a cliche that when i talk about having your back, it's much more heartfelt. so the mood music is good. the question about policy is a different story. jenna: it's interesting to note when the president began his first term he made the speech in cairo to the muslim world. now he's beginning his second term with this speech to israelis specifically. what do you make of that juxtaposition? does it signal anything truly different between the first and second term? >> let me be an optimist for a second. jenna: that is a new thing for you i know. >> hard for me to do. part of the problem with obama's first term is he spent a lot of time coddling our enemies and united states andtting distance our friends. maybe he understands really what you have to do is run an
, president obama spending his last day in israel paying his respects at two memorial sites solemnly reaffirming the jewish state's right to exist. lelandleland vittert is now jois live from jerusalem with more. >> reporter: we started with ceremony in the morning today, and now as president obama has landed in jordan, this turns to really hard core, nitty-gritty diplomatic work of trying to shore up one of the last remaining u.s. allies in the arab world. king abdullah controls the linchpin, the united states has, of course, lost the president in egypt as an ally, the president in tunisia, the president of yemen, and king abdullah is one of the last friends america has. he, too, is under threat from the muslim brother hood, so a big part of this is the president thanking him for his help and promising to continue the aid from the united states. also the u.s. military cooperation with jordan which is especially key right now as jordan is facing increasing threats in terms of the syrian civil war. not only the refugee crisis, also the threat of al-qaeda-linked groups setting up bases
that obama did something, two good things. one, is to publicly recognize the jewish state and the roots of the jews and religion which was important for the rest of the world. >> sean: is that really so good? >> so for him to say that, it was a good things. and now, he wants the palestinians to recognize the jewish state. this is not going to happen. >> sean: i wanted to get your reaction? >> i spent a good amount of time in israel just over a month ago talking with their ministers and talking with the people. they are guarded. that is the only way i can say. they are guarded about american leadership and they understand our culture. we talk about the red line and who gives netanyahu the go ahead and does it meet the reality. net netted is going to have make the decisions he needs to make and he so get past that. get past the obama statements. get past the fact that we know that in 67 hamas was formed by the muslim brotherhood. he wants us to go back to '67 borders but it's not going to happen. >> the hamas charter still calls for the destruction -- >> look at the culture and look at th
and friends of ours, and so it's in the interest of the united states that they begin this process of getting their relationship back in order. >> warner: mr. obama had spent much of the day in israel and the west bank, visiting landmarks commemorating the history of the jews and one of christianity's s holiest treasures safeguarded by the palestinians. he had a few words when he got to yad vashem, the memorial to the six million jews murdered in the holocaust. >> here, on your ancient land, let it be said for all the world to hear: the state of israel does not exist because of the holocaust. but with the survival of a strong jewish state of israel, such a holocaust will never happen again. >> warner: the president then mr. obama was driven there through the israeli checkpoints and security wall separating israel from the west bank, after a sudden sandstorm grounded the president's chopper. it was perhaps a too-perfect metaphor for the tangled peace process he leapt back into this week. from there, it was a short flight to amman, capital of jordan, first arab state the president has visited s
disagree. nobody disagree? do you think for better or worse has obama made the situation in middle east better? raise your hand, worse? okay, why? >> he has presented an unclear message as to where the united states should be going and where the arab world is going and refused to call the jahadis an enemy and call for continuation of the war on terror. he refuses to use the word enemy and use jihad and engage in this war like the cold war is. >> sean: before we get everybody else's comments. remember georgetown university there was crucifixion, they covered that. remember. this is obama speaking and over him is a picture of a known terrorist. his name is yasser arafat. i wouldn't speak with a picture like that over my head, would you? >> i absolutely not. no criticism of this and except for sean hannity and the media is in his pocket. when you talk about if he has made the situation in the middle east worse and encouraged the rise of them, i would say absolutely. look at the policy at egypt. we get the muslim brotherhood a sworn enemy. look at libya, moammar khadafy had killed americans
. this is kerry's first trip to iraq since he became secretary of state. >>> president obama is resting up for a busy week. marine one landed last night. the president had returned from his four-day middle east tour. tomorrow he is going to speak at a naturalization ceremony for service members at the white house. he will also designate five new national monuments. they include the harriet tubman underground in maryland. on tuesday he welcomes the los angeles kings and the l.a. galaxy. >>> on monday the u.s. will formally transfer control of a controversial prison near the bagram airfield in afghanistan. the prison houses more than 3,000 insurgents and other inmates. the deal includes assurances that prisoners who pose a danger to coalition forces will continue to be detained under afghan law. the u.s. navy says the deployments of a guided missile vessel and submarine have been canceled because of the nation's spending cuts. the secretary of defense ordered the cuts for the san diego-based u.s.s. rence. the navy's blue angels will perform their last show for awhile today in key west, flori
